43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 21% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
The 2016 Conjurer was aged for 12 months in 27% new French oak. Hailing mostly from our Estate Blocks in Red Mountain Vineyard and Blue Mountain Vineyard, this wine is a classic Washington State Bordeaux-style blend. It shows tremendous weight and concentration; while holding on to its elegance. The mouth-filling palate and medium-weight, fleshy tannins, are buoyed by food-friendly acid and a long, long finish. This wine has a gorgeous nose dominated by herbal notes from the Cabernet Franc, as well as savory spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, and a flavor profile of dark fruit, like plum and blackberries. The Conjurer cries out to be paired with your favorite steak, and to be shared with your favorite people (or just sipped in front of a roaring fire – with or without company).
P.S. A special thanks for NPH for lending his face as the “The Conjurer” on the label.
